Gettin' the Band Back Together, now in previews at Broadway's Belasco Theatre, has announced the details of its digital lottery, effective immediately.

Lottery tickets are $39.50 Monday through Thursday, and $45 Friday through Sunday. The public can sign up on the show's website here. Participants may enter the lottery at 12am ET for that day's performance. The lottery will close at 9am for matinee performances and close at 2pm for evening performances. Winners will be notified shortly after the lottery closes and will be able to purchase up to two tickets by 11am for matinee performances and 4pm for evening performances. Winners can return to the site after each drawing to check their status. They will also receive an email at the address they provided and can also choose to be notified by text message.

Gettin' the Band Back Together follows Mitch Papadopolous, who always dreamed about being the next Bon Jovi. However, he chose security over stardom and left those daydreams behind for a day job. For a while, he thought he had everything — the high-paying job, the high-rise apartment — until his 40th birthday, when he got handed a pink slip and had to move back in with his mom in Sayreville, New Jersey. When his high school archnemesis threatens to foreclose on their house, this big-shot banker must save his small-town home the only way he can…by winning the Battle of the Bands.

Directed by Tony Award winner John Rando and choreographed by Chris Bailey, Gettin' the Band Back Together began previews on July 19 at the Belasco Theatre in advance of an August 13 opening. The show has original music and lyrics by Mark Allen and a book by Ken Davenport and the Grundleshotz with additional material by Sarah Saltzberg.
